Muskoka, the Cottage Country
As a native or resident of Ontario, Canada, you are blessed with many good vacation alternatives. Even if you live in large cities like Toronto, you need not spend time or money, or go very far to have a fantastic vacation with your family.
You can easily plan a staycation in Muskoka, Ontario, which is a mere four-hour drive from the capital, Ottawa, via the lovely Algonquin Park route and access the Muskoka area through Gravenhurst, a historic town with several lakes. If you’ll be coming from Toronto, it will just be a two-hour drive.
Rooms and Amenities of the JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort and Spa
You can choose from four types of guests rooms – Studio King, Studio Queen, One-bedroom Suite, and Two-bedroom Suite. The suites have spacious parlors with fireplaces and wrap-around balconies which offer you a breathtaking view of the country outdoors, pretty much like being in an evergreen forest. The best thing about any of these room types is that all have full-service kitchens which include range, oven, dishwasher and microwave. So you can actually save a lot in food expenses by just cooking your own meals instead of dining at the hotel’s restaurants.

Things to Do for a Fantastic Muskoka Staycation
While the hotel is a perfect place for a Muskoka winter getaway, it can also be just as wonderful as a summer retreat. There are countless ways to spend your stay in the area.
During the summer, you can go for lots of outdoor walks and nature tripping without having to wear heavy jackets, snowshoes, and other winter gear. You can go swimming in any of the resort’s heated pools during this season. One of the pools is indoor-outdoor, so you can enjoy stargazing while swimming or lounging at the pool during the evening. You can arrange for special sightseeing tours by seaplane, helicopter or boat. The resort offers outdoor activities such as biking, boating, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, and water skiing.
At the Muskoka Wharf, you can relive the county’s history by cruising on one of its steamships, the oldest to operate in North America.
And if you prefer to stay on the hotel’s premises during evenings, you can casually sip a cocktail under the stars at one of the bonfires.
The winter season offers a myriad of exciting activities like snowshoe hiking, snowmobiling, and dog sledding.
While summer and winter activities at the JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort and Spa are suitable for most age groups, please ask the hotel staff about any risks for the elderly or PWDs.
